Korean born Newgen designer, Jackie Lee graduated from Central Saint Martin’s in 2010and launched her label the same year.
This year she looks to the 1920’s style of dropped waists and boyish straight silhouettes for her SS12 collection.
For her fabric, she has taken inspiration from her niece whilst she was eating candy floss. It was not the fluffiness of the candy floss itself that caught her eye, but she became fascinated by the look and feel it had on her niece’s clothing.
She replicated the effect and created a high shine embossed film on to her garments
Expecting candy floss pink to be in the colour palette, it was not to be as monochrome black and white dominated...
with accents of cobalt blue......
.....and peach. I suppose it would have been too sweet and girlie for her sleek and androgynous shapes.
A few styles where a bit too clinical looking
but most looked ideal for a hot summer’s day.
I could imagine the peach top with plunging black neckline worn over a white shift dress looking stunning for a lazy warm hot day at Wimbledon or cricket.
